“Rome Vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

We had a wonderful time in Rome. A major factor was our stay at this resort. We had an easy check in and check out. Maid service was outstanding, they even check with us in the evening to see if we needed anything! The breakfast buffet was very good and the staff very helpful. The bar was nice and the staff really on top of things. We did not try the dining room as we ate out at different locations. Nor did we use the spa as we had for full days planned in various parts of the city. It is a bit of a walk to the more interesting parts of Rome, but, if the weather is good this should not be a problem. In fact, we ran into a lot of interesting things by walking around. The Villa Borghese is a very nice place to walk and we found a very nice restaurant for lunch on the far side of the park.

rooms are not huge, but they are well decorated and have a small balcony. Pool and bar area is lovely. the buffet breakfast is fabulous. others in my party had to wait past check-in time for their room which was very hard on them.

The locaton of the hotel was nice, it was in a pretty residential neighbourhood far enough away from the crowds of tourists in Central Rome. There is a tram that is close to the hotel, it runs quite frequenlty and takes you right into central rome and to the Metro. The hotel was what you would expect from a 5 star hotel with very good service and attention to detail. When we arrived there was a bottle of proseco chilled, fresh fruit and some warm appetizers it was a nice touch!The hotel staff were most helpful making hotel reservations and arranging for taxis. They were even kind enough to show me some of the architectural details from the original interiors designed by the noted Italain architect Gio Ponti. The outdoor hotel pool was STUNNING with gorgeous landscaping and surrounded by a park. There was a local restaurant that we walked to every night for dinner - the food was superb and it was filled with lively local residents. We never did have time to use the indoor spa although we did tour it and it looked lovely. We would definitely stay here again.

Have just spent 4 nights at this hotel with my family and it was fabulous, our rooms overlooked the swimming pool and Borghese Gardens, very peaceful. Staff very attentive and after a days sightseeing it was wonderful to return to hotel to relax in the Spa. After a shower in the evening we would return to find beds turned down and fresh towels in the rooms. The hotel spoke of a genteel bygone age with soft furnishings and all marble and ancient paintings. The outdoor pool was very cold but we managed a swim. Breakfast was very nice and waiters very attentive. Would definitely return to this Hotel. Word of warning take plenty of money as Rome is tremendously expensive but so worth visiting. A really enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking swimming pool and gardens very quiet.

I have stayed in many 5 Star Hotels in the World. None are perfect. Most are quite pretentious live off hype and Brand names. Often overrated because of meaningless attributes.
The Parco dei Principi , however, s an oasis of luxurious calm in a hectic City. Grand, traditional and spacious but with a good balance between modern necessities and comfort. Rooms are very clean and combine nostalgic and atmospheric features with trendy bedrooms in an acceptable adhesion.
This Hotel is a few euros taxi ride to the heart of ancient Rome ( why the gripes ? ) but offers lovely gardens, a resort standard pool , and a Spa and indoor pool which is one of the best I have seen anywhere in the World.
The usual niggles of overpriced wi fi, and breakfast selection, although good could be improved. Its a 3 star breakfast. in a 5 Star Hotel. I really dont expect to get my own coffee and tea in a 5 Star Hotel, and an omelette or visible a la carte extras menu would be well receoved. . Despite all of this, and having viewed many other Hotels in Rome of a similar standard, If you can negotiate a good price for your stay here you wont be disappointed.

Room Tip: Park/Pool view rooms are wiorth the extra, they also get the sun.

I am lucky enough to have stayed in 6 or 7, 5 star hotels in Rome .
This hotel has a lot going for it it is slighty out of town a 10 min walk through the park.
The hotel is not much from outside but inside is a diffrent matter, large soft chairs plenty of staff, nice bar, and swimming pool, great in Rome in summer, and a fantastic spa.
I think a lot of people should look at there own behavior before they complain about the desk staff.
First shouting at staff just because the room will not be ready till 1pm or 2pm oclock because you have taken 15 hours to fly there, then shouting again because you are asked to leave your room at 11 or 12 to let the next person in to the room who themself have just come in from a long flight.
Standing at the desk getting annoyed because the staff are on the phone. I watched some people get very anoyed at the desk not knowing the member of staff was trying to arrange a doctors visit. and the other dealing with familay from China non English speaking lost at the train station.
So wait your turn and they will help you I personaly think they were very good.
As I said the hotel is a bit out of town and has a shuttel service starts at 10 am stops at 6pm
It would be better I think if it started at 8am till say 8pm like the Hilton.The drinks in the mini bar are expencive like all hotels but there are bars resturants and shops just a short walk behind the hotel 2 blockes to the right then first left.
Thanks to all at the hotel for making my 14 day holiday with you a great stay.

Room Tip: rooms ending with a eight on the corner are the best
